Other Methods for Securing Documents

There are other options for securing Word documents, which depend on the features of the underlying operating system you are running. For example:

  • Files stored on Windows 2000 systems can be encrypted using Windows 2000's Encrypted File System (EFS).

  • Files stored on any Windows system can be hidden by setting their file attributes. In Windows 2000 or Windows XP, follow these steps:

     
    1.
    Open Windows Explorer.

    2.
    Select and right-click the file you want to hide. The shortcut menu appears.

    3.
    Choose Properties from the shortcut menu.

    4.
    In the General tab, check the Hidden box.

    5.
    Click OK.
